The 7th Sign Theatre Company presents Zastrozzi: The Master of Discipline, written by George F. Walker and directed by Adam Parrish.
A swashbuckling satire set in late 19th century Europe, Zastrozzi pits its title character, a German "master criminal" and judgmental atheist, against an idealistic Italian artist and self-proclaimed "messenger of God" who has also murdered Zastrozzi's mother. Having taken several years off from his criminal escapades, Zastrozzi is committed to the demise of his ideological counterpart.
Although the artist has thus far managed to evade him, Zastrozzi creates a new and ingenious plot using his former lover, "the greatest seductress in Europe", to insure his enemy's destruction. Just as Zastrozzi closes in on the artist, he discovers his true nemisis to be an entirely different man.
